I am finding that looking at a focus stacked landscape is rather disturbing; it seems rather harsh. The first picture below is the last frame of a stack. The focus is at the rear of the picture. Below it is the stacked image. Looking at the stacked image is rather uncomfortable. Is this just me or am I doing the focus stacking wrong? The first of the pictures was processed in Lightroom. The rest then had the processing duplicated. After that they were sent to PhotoShop for stacking. There were five frames in the original stack. By the way, focus stacking close ups of flowers does not bother me in the same way.
